The 43rd edition of Australia’s premier tourism event, Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE), will be held on the Gold Coast at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in 2023.
At the conclusion of the ATE22 Live event in Sydney, Tourism Australia Managing Director Phillipa Harrison confirmed next year’s ATE would be held on the Gold Coast, in partnership with Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ).
“We look forward to working closely with TEQ to deliver ATE23 on the Gold Coast next year and provide operators with another chance to network and do business with key players around the world,” Ms Harrison said.
“Trade events like ATE are more important than ever for connecting Australian tourism suppliers with international travel wholesalers and retailers to help support the industry’s recovery from the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“The long-term benefits from ATE are substantial – the relationships and future business it establishes can grow Australia’s tourism industry by up to $100 billion.”
